Atacama, Chile

Information

The popularity of this adobe precordillera oasis stems from its position in the heart of some of northern Chile's most spectacular scenery. A short drive away lies the country's largest salt flat, its edges crinkled by volcanoes (symmetrical Licancábur, at 5916m, looms closest to the village). Here too are fields of steaming geysers, a host of otherworldly rock formations and weird layer-cake landscapes.

 
San Pedro itself, 106km southeast of Calama via paved Chile 23, is quite small, but it attracts hordes of travelers. Despite the high prices and tourist-agency touts, there's undeniable allure to this desert village with its picturesque adobe streets, laid-back residents and music-filled eateries.


The best time of the year to visit it:


Spring-Summer (from October to March). San Pedro de Atacama is mostly visited during these seasons for its warm weather, lower temperature variation and a few rainfalls (from January to April) which result from the phenomenon called Bolivian or altiplanic winter.
